Subject:        Interpreting Branagh

In her book Framing Shakespeare on Film, Kathy M. Howlett has a sentence
that surprised me.  Commenting on the scene in Branagh's HV where the
three traitors are arrested, she writes, *The problem is that Branagh
constructs this scene so that... the audience's sympathies are with the
traitors and not with the king who ensnares them.*

Does this scene play this way to you, or do you think that Howlett is
wrong?

Thanks,
Mike Jensen
